Derek Daly has this year’s club place for the London Marathon and if you follow our Facebook page you’ll see that he’s been busy racking up the miles whilst at home and abroad.

Derek is not a newbie to this distance and this will be his 5th Marathon. He promised his wife he’d never do another one after the 4th but he couldn’t resist a chance to support Macmillan again – and if you take a look at his JustGiving page you’ll know why.

So let’s talk times! For marathon number 5 there must be a time to beat…Derek’s Marathon PB is 3hr35min at Brighton in 2016 and he says he’d love to dip under 3hr30 if he can. And with a new Half Marathon PB at Great Bentley recently (1hr 39mins 14secs) we’d say he’s on the right track!

So if you’d like to sponsor Derek and give him more reason to smash his PB, head over to his JustGiving page: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/derek-daly4

Derek will keep updating us on Facebook so don’t forget to keep an eye on that too.

Happy training Derek!

(Here he is after a spot of altitude training in the Alps..!)
